I wanted to send a note to say thank you for all of your hard work and investment in our cohort as teachers and people last year. Your guidance was invaluable to the teaching process and graduate student experience. Tomorrow night I’m graduating and I could not have made it without all of you!

This has been one of the best personal and professional experiences of my life, and it’s in part because you are dedicated to us and our students. Though I won’t be teaching in the immediate future, I would not trade the past two years for anything.

And by the way, Michael, I can’t resist saying that your chapter on technorhetorician administrators in Technological Ecologies & Sustainability was extremely important to my recently completed dissertation, so thanks for that :)
